If it’s time to replace your fence, or install a new one, there’s a lot to consider, including why you want one. Do you want privacy, a way to contain pets but keep wildlife out, or is security most important? What is your house style? When looking into fencing, remember that fence installers measure and price based on linear feet of material. Posts and gates will cost extra. Also, make sure you do a land survey to ensure you’re not encroaching on your neighbors’ property.
